We want everyone who uses PlacePress to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding. The following applies to the PlacePress plugin for WordPress. For information about the accessibility of WordPress itself, please see the WordPress Accessibility Statement.


To help us make PlacePress a useful tool for everyone, we are following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and more user-friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for PlacePress.

Current Status

We’re working hard to achieve our goal of Level AA accessibility, but we realize there are some areas that need further attention. The following information explains what we’re doing to make that happen and what you can do to make sure your project meets the success criteria for your end users.

Level A/AA success criteria 1.2.1 – 1.2.4:

Content creators are encouraged to utilize the built-in caption functionality whenever using PlacePress map blocks. If the captions are used to provide text-equivalent information for the interactive maps, this will bring your project into compliance with the success criteria.

Known issues

Some interactive elements of PlacePress may currently have minor or even significant shortcomings for site administrators who need to create content using only keyboard input. This is an area that requires further work on our part.


If you have enjoyed using PlacePress, or if you are having trouble with any part of it, please let us know by contacting us at
